Dear Chevrei,
As you may know, our dear, precious, and beloved Rabbi Yitzchak Cohen was able to complete a successful surgery, and is now at home recovering. All of us are wishing him a speedy and full recovery, and remain so grateful that he is no longer suffering from the intense pain that he endured for so long. He and Rosie have requested that we respect his need to focus on the post-surgical therapeutic process at this time, and that you minimize home visits to them during the next three to four weeks at least. If you do want to visit, please be sure to call first, as when he is not occupied with the many home treatments and rehab efforts, he will need a great deal of rest. 

Shabbat Shalom,
Rabbi David Barnett

Passover Fund (Maot Chittim)

You can reap the reward of making it possible for those who otherwise couldn’t afford to make or partake in a Seder. Our Passover Fund is a way in which we assist others – in a highly discrete manner – so everyone can enjoy the holiday. To donate to the fund, send or mail a check to the office with a notation for “Passover Fund”. You may also call the office at 972-618-2200 to make a donation via credit card.


Sale of Chametz (Mechirat Chametz)

The “Sale of Chametz” document officially removes all chametz that might be left in your house from your ownership and returns it to you at the conclusion of the Holiday.

Forms need to be turned in by Sunday, April 21 at noon.
